At Last! Since mid 2010 we have been banging on about 90 minute documentary about our favourite album designer the late Storm Thorgerson that was underway. The project kicked off officially in 2010 with an appeal on by Director Roddy Bogawa but had many hurdles to overcome. Eventually, in October this year the final hurdle was cleared and a trade of usage agreement was agreed with Pink Floyd's Management. The doco (Aptly named 'Taken By Storm') had it's first public screenings in New York & London in early October, amid rave reviews. Those that backed this project on have started to receive their copies of the DVD (and in some cases their DVD digipak + print edition) and we have had some really positive feedback. Now the good news is that you can order the DVD, as well as a print and movie poster at This really is a MUST HAVE for any Floyd fan because as well as Storm, the film features David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Robert Plant, Peter Gabriel, Aubrey Powell, Graham Gouldman, Alan Parsons, and members of Catherine Wheel, Muse, The Mars Volta, Biffy Clyro, Damien Hirst and Sir Peter Blake. In addition there are numerous photographers, illustrators & assistants who have helped Storm create his work during the last 40 plus years. Taken by Storm documents Thorgerson’s idiosyncratic artistic process (For example: Dragging 765 iron beds onto a beach for the A Momentary Lapse of Reason album). The movie also explores how one of the most powerful image-makers in rock and roll transcended the constraints of commercial marketing to realize his unique artistic vision, creating a powerful visual legacy that resonates throughout contemporary culture.
Operatic Version Of The Wall For Montreal As part of the festivities for the 375th anniversary of Montreal in 2017, there will be a special operatic version of The Wall. The Montreal Opera will perform a version in English with new music by a composer Julien Bilodeau. Roger said the he was "very, very proud that they are going to use The Wall for a modern opera". Roger is in regular communication with France Chrétien Desmarais, who is President of the Company's 375th celebrations and with the general manager of the Montreal Opera, Pierre Dufour. The team is currently at the heart of this project. "I am eager to reconnect with Quebecers," said Roger who is understood to be excited to hear a new version of his well-known work.

More On Roger's Album & Possible Tour Roger has told Rolling Stone that he's been writing rock songs and a script for an as-yet-untitled "radio play." Excerpts from the work could make up a new album, and he thinks the radio play could become an arena show. "I can see it in my mind's eye," Roger said. He also said he cut demo recordings of his proposed songs in Los Angeles a few weeks ago with Nigel Godrich, the recording engineer and producer best known for his work with Radiohead. Last but not least, he is willing to consider a big tour to support it. "I'd like to do one more if I can," he says. "I think I've got one more in me." Read The Full Story
